Flynn would have gotten no court time and had zero trade value, while Miller adds depth and is a great locker room guy. Minny needs veteran leaders.

New roster:
PG: Ridnour/ Rubio/ Lee
SG: Johnson/ Webster/ Ellington
SF: Beasley/ Williams/ Hayward
PF: Love/ Randolph/ Tolliver
CT: Milcic/ Miller/ Pekovic

Looking solid. Williams could be the 6th man of the year

You're probably just a T-Wolves fan who's pissed that the triangle is disappearing. Sorry bro. I'll miss it, too.

Who is your second franchise player?

I hope you don't say Gordon because I don't see him as being any better than Love or Beasley.

Clippersfan is just letting us know hes going to troll the shit out of this site and PSD for the next year.

The good thing about karma is that it always comes back to bite the LA Clippers in the ass.

Im not wishing a major injury on Eric Gordon or Blake Griffin. But that is in the hands of the basketball Gods.

oh snap! Somebody should have told the Bucks about Brandon Jennings sucking in Europe before they drafted him! Now they are stuck with a complete bum!

In the Italian Lega A 2008-09 season, Jennings averaged in 27 games, 5.5 points, 1.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1.5 steals in 17.0 minutes per game.

Jennings was also a much better player than Rubio ever was. He was one of the most recruited and dominant HS players ever. Bit different. I never here once said he CAN'T be good. I said I doubt he will be. The fact that you had to reach and give me just a single example is funny though. My point is Rubio is WAY overhyped for a guy who pus*ied out of playing in the NBA the last 2 seasons and admitted flat out that he wasn't ready. People act like he's the next coming of Nash/Stockton.

Eric Gordon proved he could carry the team and for a period of about 2 months he was actually our best player, not Blake Griffin. At the time he was putting up 24.3 ppg, 3 rpg, 4.5 apg which was right before his serious wrist injury. Please never again say Beasley is anywhere close to the level of player of Eric Gordon.

Love doesn't have the mentality to carry a team... or to be a franchise player. Mostly everyone including Wolves fans know this. Beasley is more likely to emerge as the leader of that team than Love.

Blake Griffin and Eric Gordon are both elite cornerstones. There isn't a single better inside/out combo in the NBA.

You need to stop posting your homerism is far too high, the Clippers are not that good.

Gasol/Kobe and Melo/Amare are both 10 times better than your duo.

If they were the best inside out duo in the NBA how come they didn't win more games?

Face it they put up empty stats.

1. The team was full of rookies and unexperienced players
2. Eric Gordon was injured for a significant amount of time (right when things started to turn around).
3. Clippers are in the WEST. Knicks are in the EAST.

What? How do you figure that? Rubio has some of the most dominant performances I've seen in international youth basketball over here.
Don't overestimate HS basketball.

I bet Jennings doesn't step into the ACB at 14 years old, no way he does that.
